Muslim Congressman: I Got Death Threat

Representative Andre Carson, who is one of only two Muslim members of Congress, said that he received a death threat on Tuesday in the wake of increasing Islamophobic rhetoric in the United States. “I just received a death threat yesterday in my own office, and it’s largely in part to this toxic environment,” Carson told CNN on Tuesday. “What concerns me is you have the demagoguery taking place from people who are seeking to become president of the United States. You have other politicians who are joining the bandwagon and who are fanning the flames of bigotry.”
